In a move that no one seen coming Celtic announced on Friday that CEO Dominic McKay would be stepping down from his position due to “personal reasons” after just 72 days in the role.
In light of the announcement the club’s current Director of Legal & Football Affairs, Michael Nicholson has been appointed to the Board of Celtic plc as acting CEO.
The real reasons for the sudden departure remain a mystery with many suggesting that McKay wasn’t given the autonomy to carry out his role effectively, whilst others suggest he didn’t have the required skillset in the first place.
What seems clear is that there’s much more to run on this story and like everyone with a Celtic persuasion we’ll be keeping a close eye on developments.
